Tuesday is the Short Sale and Foreclosure Group with Bob Massey as well as the “Fish Club” with Russ Hiner on Negotiations. Thursday is the Cash Cow Commercial Group with Steve Brown and the Haves & Wants Meeting with Joe Thompson.
with Robert Locke
We hear about all these foreign buying groups, hedge funds, big investor groups, etc. coming into Atlanta and purchasing big portfolios of properties. What’s the real story? Rumors are flying about large packages being sold off by government agencies. Who is going to purchase them, and who is going to manage them? What are they going to do with them once they purchase them? Will the “small” investor have a chance to participate or will they be locked out?
We are very pleased to have Robert Locke, Broker Owner of Crown Realty and Management as our Speaker for the Movers & Shakers Meeting on Monday, March 19th at 11:00 AM who will be addressing these topics and more. Robert speaks to these folks on a regular basis and has some interesting insights to share on these trends and more.
